Oremus 2005 Late Harvest Tokaji

From a winery now operated by Vega Sicilia, David Copp's Hungary: Its Fine Wines and Winemakers says the blend used is Furmint, the Furmint-Bouvier cross Zeta, Harslevelu, and yellow muscat, and at least 60% of the grapes are botryris-infected.

Rich amber color.

Honey-sweet smell, peach and mild oak.

Honey and preserved apricot, candy-apple.

Very good dessert for $22.00/375ml, sugar well-balanced with acid. I remember communist-era tokaji aszu, this is similar but very much superior.
